One of the favorite topics of our news is about moon landing. So, on this day (on September 20, 1970) the Soviet Union's Luna 16 moon probe landed on the moon.
With the help of a radio telescope APEX scientists at European Southern Observatory in Chile (ESO) detected the presence of hydrogen peroxide in the cold gaseous nebula in the constellation Ophiuchus at a distance of 400 light years from Earth.Hydrogen peroxide (H202) is extremely active compound, which plays an important role in biological and chemical processes on Earth. Hydrogen peroxide concentration was extremely low for about one molecule of H2O2 for ten billions of molecules of other substances.
By scientists’ hypothesis,in space, it can be formed on the surface grains of cosmic dust.ESO experts believe that the discovery will help to understand the processes of water molecules in space, and will help determine why in the cosmos practically no oxygen in the free form.
